that's indeed strange - but where did you get the source for 0.7.0 from
then? I can't see it on the freemind.sf.net page.  Sorry for being so
nosy... ;-)

you might want to add your key there eventually.

yes, true, my mistake (little confusion there about 2 and 1.4.1... ;-)
Nevertheless, most people (including me) will actually have
BlackdownJava2-JRE installed, which works absolutely fine - I'm not sure
if you can set a "require either java2-jre or BlackdownJava2-JRE" in the
rpm?  In either case, the package java2 should not be required, the jre
should suffice.

sorry to bother you with this,
I hope you had a good start into the new year,
with greetings from Montreal,

This sentence contradicts itself; well, no actually it doesn't.
